3 Living Our Values Everyday MICHAEL MEDLINE President and Chief Executive Officer Canadian Tire Corporation I'm extremely honoured to be part of the Canadian Tire team and to have this opportunity to share our Code of Business Conduct with you. What grew out of a small but bold entrepreneurial idea has become an iconic Canadian brand with a culture that we are all proud of. Today, Canadian Tire is a vibrant network of interrelated businesses, yet there's still simplicity to the way we do business because of the values that we share: honesty, integrity and respect. Everywhere I go in the company I see our values at work. They affect every interaction we have with each other, our customers and our other stakeholders. We have a strong team culture that is well-respected; however, to keep it strong we must ensure our values are embedded in all of our business interactions. At Canadian Tire, we do business The Canadian Tire Waygrounded in a common set of values and guided by a set of ethical standards known as our Code of Business Conduct. As one of Canada's most trusted companies we are committed to our Code of Business Conduct. The Code is a reflection of our culture and the Canadian Tire brand, a brand that has taken decades to build, a brand trusted by Canadians and backed by the passion and dedication of every team member. I believe that success is achieved when you build a business based on brand and values. We have such a talented team of individuals at Canadian Tire. I know I can count on each one of you to live by our values everyday. Today, Canadian Tire is a vibrant network of interrelated businesses, yet there's still simplicity to the way we do business because of the values that we share: honesty, integrity and respect.... They affect every interaction we have with each other, our customers and our other stakeholders.

6 Doing Business The Canadian Tire Way As one of Canada's most visible and trusted companies, our actions must be above reproach to ensure we maintain the confidence and trust of employees, shareholders and the public. As members of the Canadian Tire team, we know that the way we treat each other and interact with business partners, suppliers, customers, competitors and others is an important reflection of our culture, values and brand. When doing business The Canadian Tire Way: we value honesty, integrity and respect we appreciate the efforts of our employees and business partners we promote open communication and transparency we are all accountable, innovative, team minded and community responsible we lead by example and our words are consistent with our actions These values and behaviours mirror those of our founders. These values were important back in 1922 and are still with us today. By reading this document you will learn about the Code and your role in upholding it. 4

7 Being True to The Canadian Tire Way The manner in which we conduct ourselves with others influences their confidence and trust in our abilities and our company. We must demonstrate personal integrity when acting on behalf of Canadian Tire. How we do business, described later in this document, cannot cover every possible situation. If you face a questionable situation, ask yourself how your decision would be viewed by others. We expect you to apply good judgment to each situation. In every situation, ask yourself: If the result of my actions were to appear on the front page of the newspaper, would it be embarrassing to me, my family or the Company? If you're still unsure please speak to your Manager or the BCCO. Please refer to page 13 for contact information. We are expected to commit to and uphold the Code. 5

8 Our People TEAM CANADIAN TIRE Working together we promote a positive and diverse work environment. Employees have the right to a workplace free of harassment and discrimination where opportunities are granted based on merit. We act in accordance with applicable laws and are clear about behaviours we will not tolerate, including discrimination of any kind, abuse, harassment or any form of disrespectful and inappropriate behaviour towards our employees, directors, investors, suppliers, customers or others. Being open and honest in our dealings, both within and outside the company, will ensure that our culture evolves in ways that grow and protect Canadian Tire's strong reputation and brand in Canada and overseas. 6

9 Our Community As one of Canada's most trusted companies, we take pride in having a prominent presence in the community. Good corporate citizenship is highly valued at Canadian Tire. Our employees have a long history of giving back to communities coast-to-coast. CHARITABLE DONATIONS It is acceptable to solicit support from suppliers and business partners (including Dealers) on behalf of Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities. We do not solicit support from our suppliers for any other charities unless approved by an Executive Officer. We respect the decisions made by our suppliers and business partners regarding charitable support and do not allow those decisions to influence normal business dealings. Additional Information Charitable donations are governed by the Canadian Tire Corporate Donations Policy. For more information talk to your Manager. 7

10 How We Do Business WE MAKE DECISIONS IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE COMPANY Conflicts of interest occur in situations when: An employee allows personal interests or relationships to influence their ability to make honest and ethical business decisions in the best interests of Canadian Tire We (including family members, relatives and friends) receive or seek personal benefit as a result of our position with Canadian Tire. For example, accepting favours, gifts or entertainment may influence or be perceived to influence our ability to make objective business decisions. Common situations that may give rise to a conflict of interest include: Business Functions Business functions include entertainment such as sporting or cultural events paid for by a business partner. Exercise moderation when accepting invitations to business functions. Be sure your participation is in the spirit of relationship building benefiting the company. Accepting or participating in business functions when the host will not be present is not acceptable. In this case, the invitation must be declined. A business partner includes our: Dealers Franchisees Agents Current/potential service providers or suppliers In the interest of open communication and transparency, you must seek approval prior to accepting an invitation to a business function. In the case of Vice-Presidents and above, seek approval from your Executive Officer. For all other employees, seek approval from your Vice-President. Ask yourself: Is this event relevant to my role in the Company? Is this a networking opportunity? Does acceptance reduce my ability to be objective in making decisions regarding this business partner? Business Meals Infrequent business meals paid for by a business partner are acceptable. 8

11 How We Do Business Gifts Unsolicited and infrequent gifts of nominal value (no more than C$100) are acceptable. Gifts of cash or cash equivalent (including gift cards) are never acceptable. Gifts exceeding C$100 must be returned or donated. In either case, your Manager must be advised. There may be circumstances that justify an exception; these must be approved by your Executive Officer. You may wish to donate unsolicited gifts to Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities. In certain countries outside Canada, gift giving is an expected courtesy and is not intended to influence a business decision or relationship. Work Outside of the Company Work for other parties paid or unpaid and conducted during business hours requires the approval of your Manager. Any work that may create a conflict of interest or that may not be in the best interests of the company, paid or otherwise, must be approved. In the case of Vice-Presidents and above, discuss the situation with your Executive Officer. For all other employees, seek approval from your Vice-President. 9

12 How We Do Business WE COMPLY WITH LAWS Each of us must be proactive in ensuring that we are aware of and comply with the laws, rules and regulations that apply to our particular business and, in particular those which impact our roles within such business. Examples of some of the key areas of law that impact our businesses are: Unlawful Payments We never pay or accept bribes, kickbacks or other unlawful payments. These can sometimes be disguised as extraordinary gifts, entertainment and charitable donations. Competitors We deal with our competitors fairly. We obtain information about our competitors in a legal manner. "Tipping" is when an employee or director of the Company tells another person or company, other than in the necessary course of business, about material information with respect to the Company that has not otherwise been disclosed. Customers We do not engage in misleading advertising. We ensure that customers are provided with information as required by the laws that govern our business activities. Personal Information We protect the privacy and security of all personal information obtained while conducting business and limit the collection, use and disclosure of such information in accordance with applicable legislation and our Privacy Policy. Environment, Health and Safety In doing business, we will comply with laws to protect the environment as well as the health and safety of our employees, customers and the communities in which we operate. Trading in Securities We do not trade in the securities of Canadian Tire or any other company while in possession of undisclosed material information that could reasonably be expected to affect the value of those securities. We do not "tip" others concerning undisclosed material information. 10

13 How We Do Business WE PROTECT COMPANY INFORMATION & ASSETS Confidential and Proprietary Information We must maintain the confidentiality of corporate information, unless disclosure is authorized or legally required. Unless specifically developed for external use, all company records, information, data (including electronic copies), intellectual property, projects, plans and processes are considered proprietary information. Requests for information that are not generally available to the public must be directed to the Vice-President, Corporate Communications and Investor Relations. Who makes public disclosure decisions? Decisions about what information is publicly disclosed are made by Canadian Tire's Disclosure Committee. We will be diligent in protecting the Company's assets and any assets entrusted to the Company by third parties against loss, damage, theft, vandalism and sabotage. Assets must be used in the best interests in the Company. Limited and occasional use of the Company's physical assets is acceptable provided the use is not excessive or detrimental to the Company. Assets include everything the Company owns both physical and financial. Physical assets include: computers, data, cell phones, BlackBerry, etc. Financial assets include: investments, corporate credit cards, bank accounts, cash, etc. WE ENSURE THE REPORTING INTEGRITY & RELIABILITY OF ALL BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS We reflect the Company's business transactions accurately, fairly and in a timely manner, including the data and information that are compiled for financial management, Board and external reporting purposes. 11

14 Our Commitment to the Code Doing business The Canadian Tire Way involves a personal and professional commitment from employees and directors. To demonstrate our commitment to the Code, we will acknowledge our understanding of the principles set out in the Code upon commencing employment with the Company and we will comply with all of Canadian Tire's policies, some of which provide more information about the core components of the Code. Further, our commitment to this Code personally obliges us to report, in good faith, any activity which appears to be a breach of the Code. We will not tolerate retaliation for reports made in good faith. Reporting a breach of the Code Reports can be made anonymously to the BCCO, the Hotline, the Chairman of the Board or the Chairman of the Audit Committee. Please refer to page 13 for further information. Investigations of potential breaches of the Code will be handled in a confidential, respectful and lawful manner. All potential breaches of the Code will be treated seriously and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken for all Code violations. Action may include, but is not limited to, training, coaching, written warnings, monetary penalties and termination of employment. You will not be penalized for inquiring about and/or reporting in good faith suspected unethical behaviour or for obtaining guidance on how to handle suspected illegal acts or policy violations. 12
